Six months along with her first child — a baby girl — actress Marley Shelton and her husband Beau Flynn are in “sensory overload,” she told us at the Motherhood Begins Now event kicking off Pregnancy Awareness Month held over the weekend.
After hearing throughout the pregnancy that BornFree is the way to go, the couple plan to stock up on the bottles, as well as get much use out of their Maclaren Burberry stroller which was recently gifted to them.
Other than that, Marley laughs, when it came to registering, she was simply clueless!
“There are so many things! My girlfriend, who has two kids, took me to register and I just handed her the registry and she did it and I stood there, like, about to pass out.”
As the parents-to-be have “a really great time” decorating the nursery, a newly “confrontational” Marley — who says her new personality “must be the mother instinct taking its roots” – shares that they plan on staying as eco-friendly as possible when their little one arrives.
According to the Eleventh Hour star, the two have just started the green approach to parenthood by turning to Seventh Generation diapers. “Seventh Generation pampers, that’s about as far as we’ve gotten in terms of the research, but organic cotton as much as possible,” she says.
Marley expects her daughter in late summer.
